I recently purchased the DIY netless hammock kit and opted for the 1.7 MTN XL fabric. I also bought 100ft of amsteel and some poly webbing to make my suspension. The 1.7 MTN fabric is light but tough and still very comfortable. Last weekend I slept out with my son's Boy Scout troop and used the hammock I made and couldn't be happier.
Material is fantastic, but the 1-3 day shipping is actually about 5 days to Louisiana, at least.
I will request fed-ex moving forward. USPS tracking is useless and they are getting slower by the year.
I'm 270 lb and had made a hammock out of 1.9 ripstop nylon, but it eventually ripped. The 1.7 min hybrid ripstop nylon is much much stronger and is still crazy light.
Very strong and soft. I mad a 11’ hammock and it hangs so good. Not a very slick material but I like that. I would highly recommend especially for the heavy hangers ( I’m 270#).
